Burnley Change Their Twitter Header After Mikel Arteta's Comments And It's Pure Sh*thousery

Burnley Change Their Twitter Header After Mikel Arteta's Comments And It's Pure Sh*thousery

Burnley have changed their Twitter header to a picture of long grass after Mikel Arteta's comments following the club's 0-0 draw at Turf Moor.

The Spaniard openly criticised the state of Burnley's pitch after their Premier League clash, blaming the length of the grass as a reason why Arsenal struggled to get a foot hold in the game.

"The conditions were difficult." he said in his post-match interview. "The grass was this long. They didn't put water on it and that is difficult to play football.

"I didn't water the grass yesterday at the training ground so I was expecting it but that doesn't make it easier to play.

"We adapted really well in some moments and in some others it wasn't the grass. What they do they do really well."

"'It is lovely to watch when people are falling over, it is my favourite part," said Dyche.

"The game is in a fantastic state. No-one wants to address it apart from me, so I am absolutely happy with the state of the game."

And the club's Twitter account has also added fuel to the fire, updating their Twitter header to a picture of long grass; not to mention a clip during the fixture.
